Reviews

'An extremely well-sung traditional carol collection. The concert makes a great appeal by the quality of the singing and the beautiful digital recording' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'A model of its kind' (The Times)

'Celestial' (San Francisco Examiner)
In the first decade or so of the twentieth century John Jacob Niles was collecting songs of the North American Indians in and around the Appalachian mountains. He later published them in a book entitled Songs of the Hill-Folk. I wonder as I wander is from North Carolina, one of the original thirteen states of the Union, and its modality proclaims its folk origins. The present unaccompanied version is by Andrew Carter.

from notes by Wadham Sutton 1993
